In the U.K we are caught up in a trap of our own making that we could get out of, but many don't want to - Its basically all about money and power and who gets to have those, and who gets hung out to dry. I find myself as far removed from my country and government as its possible to be - I'd like to be in Narnia right now -away from all this ridiculous posturing which is really all about stuffing the poor who are already hungry tired and done in . We have so many people sleeping rough and people on invalididity benefits who an walk or feed themselves being shafted on a daily basis and having their benefits sanctioned when they can't get out of bed they are so ill - I seriously hate my government & my country nevr ever call us great britain we are the lowest of the low.

it is the same the world over


I watched a beautiful and very sad movie yesterday called Goodbye Christopher Robin. It's about the creation of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories but it is also about England after WW2. A trip down memory lane might be medicinal.

England seems to be suffering the same malaise as many other countries, including my own. I put it down to a loss of spirituality, having tossed away religion and replacing it with nothing but love of money. While I'm sorry for immigrants, I honestly feel uncontrolled immigration will rob England of its culture. Right now, I can't think of any other alternative to religion than culture.

If it wasn't for the support of the religious right, we would not be in this spot with Trump. So I have to respectfully disagree on religion/spirituality being thrown out as a major factor in where we are.


It is no different over here.

Sadly, the world is freaking messed up. You have your issues, in the US we have drumpf.

we are probably equal then although we have a raft of raving loonies in Parliament

@jacpod The U.S. Congress and political parties are full of raving loonies.
